When parents start a dissolution of marriage or a parentage case and they stop living together, there are many issues to resolve when there are minor children. One of the most serious issues for many parents is determining the schedule for the children to divide their time between the parents’ homes. This schedule is known as the parenting plan.
Some parents are able to create a parenting plan that works well for everyone by himself or herself. More often, parents living in different homes need assistance with creating a parenting plan either from their attorneys or through the court’s custody mediation program.
